Every year, over 1 trillion USD is distributed around the world in a form of foreign direct investments. Investments coming from foreign investors and entrepreneurs are of significant value to the country and are considered as a sign of healthy economic, political and legislative environment. When it comes to investing your money, some countries are simply better than others. It depends on numerous factors, such as the overall economy and growth opportunities of the country, political stability, taxation and overall legal system, the complexity of company formation, bank account opening and workforce.

In this article, we will summarize three jurisdictions in terms of benefits and other features crucial for foreign investors. These countries have already proven to be able to attract multinational businesses and other investments, but when it comes to choosing the right place for your investments each country is different and might be better than others in one or more factors.

Singapore

United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates or UAE is listed as the 22nd best country in the world and is not mentioned among the best countries to invest in according to the ranking mentioned above.

Before discovering oil in the middle of the 20th century, UAE’s economy was mainly based on fishing and pearl industries. The country experienced a rapid growth and overall transformation along with the beginning of oil exports in the 1960s. Nowadays, the country’s GDP can be compared with those of leading European countries and World Economic Forum has named UAE as the most competitive place in the Arab world.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China. While Hong Kong is often considered as a separate entity from China, it is not a country and therefore enters all lists and rankings under the name of China.
